    Yeah! bugling bulls for me this year. Anyone else?

    Well, I wont be bow hunting muleys this year. Drew a archery elk tag for the Bighorns (which just happen to be at my back door). 38 type 9. With all the moisture we have been getting, there are gonna be some stud bulls again this year. Two years ago I spent a fair bit of my season after a 365-370ish bruiser. Had him at 22 yrds at one point. Never got a good shot. I have nightmare ever since. Now its my time.lol. Did anyone else get lucky and draw a tag?

    I'm a MT resident, so yes, I have a tag. I will have to wait for the draw to see just how good it is. Either way, it is a good year. I have already seen a couple of bruisers in my OTC area. It is looking like a great antler year.

    Congrats Elkcrazedfrk! I will be chasing bulls in the OTC areas in my home state, as I am on a waiting period for limited entry. It's all fun as long as I'm out chasing bugling bulls. Hope you kill a toad, and you better post pictures.

    OTC Archery Elk for me. OTC Deer as well the nice thing about the OTC Deer tags in Idaho is they are good for both Archery and Rifle.

    Drew an Area 22 tag myself. Will be headed up with a buddy Saturday to see what we can see. Trying to get the digiscoping thing figured out. Borrowed the old man's Swaro scope to give it a go. I'll post some pics if I can figure out what I'm doing. I'm pretty excited just to get out from behind the desk and get in between some trees for a day.

    So, my buddy and I made our scouting trip Saturday. This link shows the pictures I was able to take: http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?s...9&l=47971b0290
    Got up at 2:30 in the AM to be out at our area early enough to glass in the morning. Was scared we still got in too late for the morning glassing but spotted 5 bulls right out of the truck. Ended up seeing 22 different bulls that day. Hiked 8 miles and gained over 3000' of elevation throughout the day. Saw this batchelor group of 9 bulls bedding and feeding. Watched them for about 3 hours. Ended up seeing 2 bulls that were pushing 300". Never saw any monsters, but I'm wondering how much they'll still have to grow by the time they start rubbing the velvet off? Got off the mountain and was back home at 11 that night. Fast, fun day. Can't wait for September.
